Significant Other's favorite teas??
I don’t know about y’all, but I’ve been trying to get my significant other to expand his tea horizons from bagged black tea…. I should start taking photos of his face and posting them to instagram, because so far it’s been hilarious! Has anyone had any luck finding a new favorite tea for your significant other or other folks that you’ve been trying to influence with tea? So far, my husband favors Harney & Sons East Frisian blend…anything else I give him is not allowed to be called “tea”….it is to be called liquid.
Mine really only drinks Vanilla Comoro, he has a thing about caffeine. Although, I got him to drink some good oolong yesterday.
My girlfriend is picky with any type of food/drink, and thats putting it lightly. Tea is no exception. For the longest time, I couldn’t get her to drink anything. One day we ended up wandering around a mall and went into Teavana to look around. I ended up talking her into trying a fruity tea blend, which she ended up liking. So, now she will only drink that specific blend from Teavana. I am trying to find her a good fruity tea online (perhaps Davids) in order to avoid the crazy prices at Teavana. If anyone has any suggestions for fruity teas, please let me know!
My sweetheart has a mild obsession with Earl Grey and Lapsang Souchong, though he does also appreciate white teas, a good shu pu erh, Masala Chai, and milk oolong.
He’s not a tea person but will occasionally drink earl grey.
He did shock me however last year by bringing home some Sugar and Spice tea from David’s Tea along with the coconut teas I had asked for. I asked him about it and he informed me it was for him! Aparently the people at David’s are better sales people than I am.
The closest mine gets to tea is cold milk. Seriously, hes got the taste buds of a 5 year old. More for me I guess.
Mine hates tea, but he like Red Leaf Tea’s flavored matchas made as an iced latte or smoothie – only in fruity flavors.
Sometimes he’s okay with a hibiscus fruity herbal with a ton of sugar in it so that it tastes like juice. Otherwise, he hates tea.
My husband loves Earl Grey and English Breakfast. Anything else might as well be nuclear waste. I’m still trying to expand his tea tastes though. :)
My boyfriend isn’t much of a tea drinker but he really likes Harney & Son’s Choco Nut and David’s Tea’s Read My Lips.
Husband drinks whatever I drink. He honestly doesn’t care either way so long as it’s hot, has caffeine in it and comes in large amounts. Occasionally he will tell me that he thought this was really good or that he didn’t much like that (but usually drank it anyway), but other than that he just doesn’t really pay that much attention to it unless I ask him to. He’s even managed once or twice to go from ‘this is quite good’ to ‘ooh I don’t care for this’ on the same tea in a matter of weeks. There are a few things that he will always enjoy, though, (although he still doesn’t pay that much attention to it) and that’s things like Golden Monkey, Laoshan Black, keemun, that sort of thing. Assam and Lapsang Souchong too, but those are more ‘normal’ teas for him and so don’t get included in the ‘Life-giving’ category.
The closest he comes to an actual favourite specific tea is probably the cheap bagged chamomile that he’s quite addicted to at bedtime. (No, I’m not even considering getting him a loose chamomile. If he wants that he’s capable of asking for it, and none of us really want to mess about with that level of bother and clean-up before bed. Before Bed Bevs are always bagged in this house. There’s a time and place for everything, and this includes loose and bagged tea.
